Occupational Therapy For Children

For all of the parents out there, this topic of screen time is one that you have more than likely experienced. Take a look at this article discussing how technology has managed to change the brains of today's children. otservices.wustl.edu #OTServices #OTPediatricEducation

Have you ever tried to take an iPad or some kind of screen away from your child? Has the reaction been quite shocking - screaming, screeching, violent? Like taking drugs away from an addict? That's not a coincidence, as many of the apps and games they are using have been specifically designed to be addictive. There's a reason many of the tech billionaires in Silicon Valley won't let their children have access to screen time.

This conversation absolutely blew my mind and made me really think about our approaches to screen time at OTFC. Highly recommended listen - confronting at times, but also provides some great solutions for parenting.


For those with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or those that treat the condition, take a look at this interesting infographic. It addresses "Sonographic Findings Associated With Carpel Tunnel Syndrome." Take a look at the full article in the May 2019 issue of The Journal of Hand Surgery: http://bit.ly/2XSEBey otservices.wustl.edu/Milliken #OTServices #OTHandTherapy

Check out this visual abstract from the May 2019 issue of The Journal of Hand Surgery on “Sonographic Findings Associated With Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.” Read the full JHS article: http://bit.ly/2XSEBey

In recognition of May being National Stroke Awareness Month, we want to share the FAST signals to look for and get help if noticed!
F- for Face. Facial drooping on one side of the face.
A- for arms. Weakness in one arm or one side of the body.
S- for speech. Slurred speech or overall trouble speaking.
T- for time. If you recognize any of these symptoms, it's time to call 9-1-1.
Let's stay alert and if these signs are noticed, react FAST!
